Looking at the gas discharge, the igniter lights up ,kicks the gas flame on for a few seconds but then kicks right off! This sequence repeats about every two- four mins. Definetly not drying my clothes.
Also the tumbler is all of a sudden extremely loud. Maybe a worn belt or guide wheel.????
I don't know what the noise is but I had the same problem with the drying. I checks several sources because I don't like to replace parts that are not broke. the problem was 2 coils near the pilot light. Each is held on by 1 screw and a wire gets plugged into it. Easy fix and ran fine again. I think the coils are a comment problem because as soon as I told the parts place what kind of dryer I had they told me what I was in for.

Sounds like burner not igniting. On front of dryer in the lower right there should be a gas valve/burner access panel. Usually you just have to pry out at bottom of panel & swing out and up to remove. This gives you access to valve coils and igniter. With panel removed set timer for heated dry and start dryer, observing first the igniter which should glow bright orange-red, then after a couple seconds you should hear a "Click" which is gas valve opening and a blue flame ignites for heat. If no glow is seen after a few seconds or at least a minute, igniter is bad, if it does glow and no click is heard from the gas valve, the coils (electro magnets) on the valve are bad, or the "Flame present" sensor is bad. Chances are it's either the coils or igniter.Try this on all heat settings, if you get heat at only one setting it might be in timer contacts, but not common. Again you can repair/replace both the igniter (usually just plugs into a receptical) and the coils (2 donut looking objects on the gas valve, replace both.) Access door may be on back if not on front, but normally their on lower right of front.
Check your coils & igniter. Access door usually located in lower right front of dryer. Remove (pry up & out from bottom of panel, if no screws, exposing burner assembly. Set dryer for heated dry and start, you should see the igniter glow bright orange (give it at least a minute) followed by a CLICK sound,(again, a few seconds) this is the coils opening the gas valve, followed by a blue flame for heat. If no glow, replace igniter. If igniter glows bright and no click, replace the coils.
First thing to check is the vent. Make sure you have sufficient air flow to the outside. If you are not sure if you have the proper rate of flow, disconnect the vent from the dryer, turn dryer on and see if burner stays on longer. Do this with a couple of damp, spun-dry towels inside the drum. If the burner short cycles again, you need to replace the coils on top of the burner assembly. These are the two black round coils.
